to give us back is what they have already taken away from us. i will remind everybody they took over $20 million. it was $2 billion this year, $2.20 billion. that is about $20 million for us. they took away that last summer. we are not even getting any of this faq. when people say we are going to pass this and it is going to help us, it will help us better than none, but we have been basically in deficit, all the school districts. they are not making up the money they have already taken away from us. i wish i would share the optimism for the good things. having said that, we are still going to negotiate with our collective bargaining partners. we always have. we did in the last two years. obviously, the integration of having back those school days is paramount for all of us, because it is unfair to students and our employees. each day is about a half percent decrease in a much they earn. that is not fair. why should they be carrying the burden of this crisis alone? those are things that are critical to us. if moneys come available, of course that is something we are going to try to get g
you mentioned, and what if you tell us though name of your firm. one of the things that was mentioned is they coordinate with the other engineering and design people and the construction firm, and one of the major problems with these kinds of construction projects is coordination, making sure that everybody is building the same building and everything fits together right. in large measure, that is the architect's job. do you make sure that the structural stuff fits together, with the architecture and the mechanical? >> that is where we earn most of our money. >> that is difficult? >> no question, we had cahill come on board at the later stages of design to help with the construction, details, flexing of systems, that sort of thing. >> we're fortunate today to have john with us, who was a soil engineer. one of the design teams, one of the original first persons to be looking at this project is the soil engineer. they look at where the building will be built, what is the soil like, and how we make the building hit the ground. people say, you go down to bedrock. are we going down to bedr
look at the state of that church, and i used to live between jackson and -- i cannot remember the other street, washington -- and i know that church well. i used to vote at the elementary school. i know the neighborhood well and i know about the church. it was not in this shape until more recently. i have a hard time saying, gee, we should play this game again with a developer who, by the way, this is not their first time the radio. if you want to make changes to the project to work with the neighborhood, if you have had two years, a lot of time to work on this, even before the last hearing. i find it frustrating to the commissioners time and the public at large to have to have this conversation over and again when there is a very simple thing that we have asked, actually, early on, that was not done. we're not even talking about the building and at the scale. just talking about the bare minimum at this developer is from the community, is familiar with the planning process, unusual requests have not been made. i just find it really frustrating, frankly. in terms of ceqa, it is very clea
of the legislature? we will put less into deferral payment and we will use that money for non-k-12 services. we will use it for health services, child-care services. that is not what that money is for. this is more cuts to k-12 and just this week, by the way, we found out that our calculation was wrong so we will propose more cuts in mid-year. we have said so many times we cannot absorb these cuts and they keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger. with leadership and concurrence of our friends in the legislature. are they in a difficult position? they have to choose between services for poor people and services for poor kids in school, yes. our job is to make them make the right choice. as hard as we try, we have not done a good enough job or we have to admit we failed and say to my kids are the lowest priority. the lowest priority of the state, not the highest. we need to change. people need to engage in this and they need to know what is going on. this is so veiled and difficult. i am urging that we in our school district tried to make this as clear as possible which is tough. and find ways

, nature gave us an opportunity with the earthquake. an unwelcomed change but nonetheless, taking down the decision that the people of san francisco had to make and mayor at the time about whether to take down the freeway or to shore it up and that decision to take it it down of course led to so many things south of market. the military decided they were going to close three military bases and this small, teeny tiny seen, 40 square miles and three bases which gave us opportunity for the presidio treasure island has been mentioned and of course very important to us, your neighbor here at hunters point. so all the mitigation, removal of poisons of the past and some of these places, they are all construction nirkt i evers. so -- initiatives. for this $10 million, for every dollar, there are 20 times more requests for the grant, so we were sort of pestering the secretary about what this would mean in transportation investment generating economic recovery. how we met the standard of that title. of course, since president obama became president, we have passed the recovery act, so much has
. i firmly believe that pe is a really important thing. it keeps us healthy. talk about prevention. this is prevention. it is a state-mandated requirement. i, too, have been threatened. it illustrates how far this subject will go and this issue will go that people will call you in your home all your having chant -- dinner and threaten you. that is incredible. and yet we have this resolution here today that gives them more. gives them our funds. let them supervise two schools with one instructor. because they did not comply with our requirement that its board set forward, and they are in violation of their own rules that every instructor must abide by the governing body of the school district in which they were, that we will extend them another year. if you can do this in good conscience, i am sorely disappointed in you. but i think this resolution goes too far and i am glad that our teachers came today because i have spoken to some of them and i said we might lose this vote but you have to speak up for your profession, your credential in, and also fourth escalation -- also for pe.
was general keith alexander who runs the national security agency under u.s. cyber command. sanger goes on to say that general alexander is one of the quote most important figures in washington that no one ever heard of. i guess that's not true anymore judging from this room. he also says that in rare moments when he talks in politics, general alexander is pretty soft spoken about america's vulnerability to such attacks. but said one senator in a classified setting like the one the other day, it's very different. i don't know what that means exactly what about what to expect from our speaker today, i do know we could not have a better speaker to address this subject. general alexander enrolled in the u.s. military academy in the class of 1974. it was a maybe the first post vietnam class of members of that class actually were joining an constitution whose future was very much in doubt. they may joke sometimes about themselves. but general david petraeus is one of the distinguished graduates of that class has said they also called themselves class of 74 pride of the corp. that class has p

.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. a record-setting heat wave in the eastern u.s. is starting to ease after two weeks of scorching temperatures. the heat wave has been blamed for causing at least 74 deaths from the midwest to the east coast, including 18 people around chicago and 13 people in maryland. all-time highs hit major cities including philadelphia, washington, said louis, indianapolis, and louisville, with more than 4500 heat records broken overall. dry conditions and a lack of rain are also devastating corn crops across the plains, which faces its worst drought in 25 years. although eastern states will see a respite, western states are facing a potential heat wave that could bring record highs later this week. to see our coverage of the latest u.s. heat wave and global warming, go to democracynow.org. president obama is expected to resume a long-running dispute with republicans to the of the bush era tax cuts that favor the wealthy and plunge the nation as a further deficit. in a rose garden address, obama will renew his call to limit the tax cuts extension to those

people were standing in the streets saying obama, obama, where are you, you have forsaken us, given up on us, and president obama did. he turned his back on the reform movement in iran because at that point he thought he was going to negotiate with the iranian regime and convince them and charm them out of their nuclear plans. so that's where we are in the arab spring movement. the second thing that we are today, i think this is the greatest threat to american security in the immediate sense is iran's nuclear weapons program. iran has tried to do two things. they want a nuclear weapons, they want to be a nuclear weapons state, they are working fast and furiously towards possession of nuclear weapons, and at the same time, they want to expand to the entire region. they want to be the most powerful country in the persian gulf region in the middle east writ large. why? because that is the check point of world's oil. 40% of the world's exported oil goes through the strait of hormuz. that's past the iranian border. if iran controls the strait of hormuz and controls the persian gulf region,
this intersection. and how to accommodate many modes end users. this is a street that is well used by cars. a number of muni lines go across broadway or long runway. we have bike routes, and we have traffic that is really important, particularly to the businesses that are on stockton street. one question we asked was if there is an opportunity to reallocate the roadway to better serve the uses we see on the street today? traffic analysis shows that there is a morning toll lane that is not at capacity right now, so our preferred design option really builds on this idea. what we have proposed is that we would eliminate that eastbound tolling, and that allows us to have two traffic lanes in each direction, and then we can provide parking all day on both sides of the street. a number of other streets -- streetscape amenities would be included such as crosswalk improvements, lighting. the package we are seeing in other streetscape improvements across the city. and in transit improvements. there are two bus stops on the street, so how to improve existing bus stop locations. if we zoom in, this is really t

state officials, but some of us have been left behind. a few years ago we took the delegation to vallejo, and warned ossie dviavis they were on trouble. the city went bankrupt. this is about how you treat the poor. at the end of the day, nations and states and localities have failed because the poor people do not have an opportunity. i want to put that in the front burner. i thank you for coming out and sharing the information you have on the city budget, thank you. [applause] >> fantastic ideas that we have heard here today. thank you, mayor and supervisors were coming out to hear these ideas. the arts are an incredible value add to san francisco. we bring in an enormous amount to the tourism budget. we hvave some funding with the hotel task fund. it has gone into the general fund, and we have a chance that is about to be completed for the 1% for public arts, and is being expanded. thank you, to a large amount of the soma area, and we want to make sure we don't lose this with the new housing developments coming up. there are chances to feed into this and it benefits the members of those
